'Napoléon', with Carl Davis’s magnificent score, released in cinemas from 11 November

Napoleon

Abel Gance’s heroic depiction of the rise of Napoléon Bonaparte is an undisputed cinema landmark. Famed for its groundbreaking technical innovations – including its famous triptych finale – and a running time of 5 ½ hours, Gance’s epic traverses many of the formative experiences that shaped Napoléon’s rapid advancement. Carl Davis’s mammoth score has been newly recorded in 7.1, and the film with its superb soundtrack is now also available on blu-ray and DVD.
